Is it normal for fish to poop a lot?
My new honey gourami is almost CONSTANTLY nibbling at algae, etc...
Could this be the reason?
His poop looks healthy(not stringy or white) But he poops definitely more than my other guys...
I just bought him yesterday, Is it after shock or something?
PLEASE LET ME KNOW!!!

Are you feeding too much or too frequently? Feed only as much as he will eat in a couple of minutes.

It could be from stress, as my fish tend to do that when I put them in a new tank, but also are you feeding them a lot? Your pet store may feed them a lot. Just make sure you feed them what they can eat in a few minutes.
